Lydia is the favourite child of Marilyn and James Lee; a girl who inherited her mother’s bright blue eyes and her father’s jet-black hair. Her parents are decided that Lydia will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue – in Marilyn’s case that her daughter transform a doctor moderately than a homemaker, in James’s case that Lydia be popular at school, a girl with a busy social life and the centre of each party. But Lydia is under pressures that have nothing to do with growing up in 1970s small town Ohio. Her father is an American born of first-generation Chinese immigrants, and his ethnicity, and hers, cause them to conspicuous in any setting. When Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, James is consumed by guilt and sets out on a reckless path that may destroy his marriage. Marilyn, devastated and vengeful, is decided to make someone accountable, it doesn’t matter what the cost. Lydia’s older brother, Nathan, is convinced that local bad boy Jack is by hook or by crook involved. But it is the youngest in the family – Hannah – who observes far more than anyone realises and who is also the only one who knows what in point of fact happened. Everything I Never Told You is a gripping page-turner, about secrets, love, longing, lies and race. This paperback book has 292 pages and measures: 19.7 x 12.6 x 1.8cm.
